Hi, Skip -

I notice that there are no MPEG-2 versions of the last several films you added. Have you decided not to do anymore MPEG-2 encodes of your movies?

Just for the time being.

Skip,

I'm truly sorry to hear that. The MPEG2 resolution you offered the other films at, 720x480, beats even Rick Prelinger's encodings (352x480).

Will MPEG2 versions of these recent films ever be available to purchase on DVD at your AVGEEKS site as many (all?) of the other films you offer on archive.org are?

Thanking you so very much for the incalculable hours of joy these films have brought to all the fans.

Yes, the films are on DVDs that I have for sale at www.avgeeks.com.

Right now, there are certain films which will be coming out on upcoming DVDs and I don't want to have to compete with the losers on Ebay who are reselling my and Rick's films.

I figure offering a lo-res version now is better than nothing. Eventually I'll have MPEG-2 versions of everything.

Does that make sense?

So how many of you download the MPEG-2 files? My assumption was that most folks were streaming movies.

Skip, anything you put on archve.org, I figure is worth having a good look at in its best form, so I almost always download the highest res available when I can, and sometimes I mash 'em up... "I'm gonna be a filmmaker when I grow up".

...by the way, are you aware there's a bunch of footage from archive.org featured in the Stockstock film festival this year?

I use the MPEG-2 files as well. Thanks for sharing your great collection on internet archive!
